Default heat soak issue

ok so ever since i installed neon injectors i have issues starting after sitting long periods of time. is this due to fuel vaporizing in the injectors?

nobody huh...thanks guys. it just started happening and was just curious if this was the cause and if anybody who has installed dodge neon injectors has had the same issue. it seems like after the engine gets heat soaked i have to let it crank over for like 30 sec before it will start...like its getting no fuel. but once it starts it runs fine. anybody had the same issue?

Im not trying to sound like an @sshole or anything....

But obvious guy says: Put the stock injectors back in if these ones are F***ing up your engine!
If your problem persists, than its not the injectors....

Be patient dude. You don't always get an instant response. Some people have things to do and might see your thread later and respond. Sometimes it takes a day or two to get a bite.
It could be heat soak. It could be the FPR is losing pressure after shut-down.

Mine is doing something like that. But everything on my engine is stock. I havent done anything. Sometimes it will fire right up and sometimes it has to sit there and crank for a few and then it will start and run fine. But i havent changed my coil or distributor rotor button. Just changed the plugs and wires a little over a year ago so i think its time i do the coil or at leasat see why its doin it.

checked the FPR after turning off using fuel pressure gauge via strater valve on fuel rail. fuel pressure is fine. like i said it feels as if the fuel in the injectors is vaporizing under heat soak so im having to crank it over longer to get fuel back to the injectors. and problem started immediatly after i installed the new injectors...and common sense guy says remanufactured EV6 neon injectors are 5x as good as 12 year old crappy jeep EV1 injectors... im going to wrap all my injectors in cool tape today and see if it helps.

Just wrap the #3 injector. From what I've read its the one that gives you all the problems. Wrap it up and see if it makes a diff. I think that would let you know that heat soak was the issue.
